Palmyra Atoll Introduction




The Kingdom of Hawaii claimed the atoll in 1862, and the US included it among the Hawaiian Islands when it annexed the archipelago in 1898.

The Hawaii Statehood Act of 1959 did not include Palmyra Atoll, which is now privately owned by the Nature Conservancy. This organization is managing the atoll as a nature preserve.

The lagoons and surrounding waters within the 12 nautical mile US territorial seas were transferred to the US Fish and Wildlife service and designated a National Wildlife Refuge in January 2001.

It is Oceania atoll in the North Pacific Ocean, about one-half of the way from Hawaii to American Samoa

It has about 50 islets covered with dense vegetation, coconut trees, and balsa-like trees up to 30 meters tall
